My read-a-thon Schedule!
It's almost time folks! Tomorrow is October 12th! You all know what the means: 24 hours of reading awesomeness! I am so excited. I am actually going to try to stay up all night for this read-a-thon. In the past, I have usually made it til sometime between 10 p.m. and midnight. Here in Minnesota, the read-a-thon start time is 7 a.m, so even if I go to bed at 10, that still gives me roughly 15 hours of reading time. However, this month, I am determined to stay up as late as I possibly can!
Here's how I am hoping my day will go tomorrow!
Tonight: Shop for Snacks so I can have the day tomorrow to just READ!
6:00 - 7:00 am - Wake up, shower, eat breakfast.
7:00 - 9:00 am - Read: I plan on starting with something easy: the first two volumes of Fruits Basket!
9:00-9:15 - Break to blog!
9:15 - 11:30 - Reading Again: I will be enjoying Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone! I love the Harry Potter Books!
11:30 - 11:45 - Break to Blog!
11:45 - 1:00 - Read! I'll finish HP and the Sorcerer's Stone, then move on to Volume 3 of Fruits Basket
1:00 - 2:30 - Blog! Then take a break to meet with my writers group! (It's been a while since I've gone to the group - so this will be a much needed respite. Plus, one of the ladies in the group is dying to know what happens next in my alien book!)
2:30 - 4:00 - Reading! I'll be enjoying The Hunger Games during this time!
4:00 - 4:15 - Blogging break!
4:15 - 6:30 - Reading time! I'll finish The Hunger Games and read the 4th volume of Fruits Basket.
6:30 - 6:45 - Break time to Blog! (This may be the last time I blog for the day. We'll see!)
6:45 - 9:00 - Reading time! I am going to read Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets during this time!
9:00 - 9:15 - Break time!
9:15 - 11:30 - Reading time! I'll finish Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and start reading the first volume of Me and My Brothers!
11:30 - Midnight - Knitting break. I am working on an awesome scarf, and this seems like the perfect time to take a break and do some knitting on it!
Midnight - 2:00 a.m. - Finish Vols. 1 and 2 of Me and My Brothers! Start reading Catching Fire.
2:00 - 2:15 - Break time! I may use the hours between midnight and now to drink some more coffee! YUM!
2:15 - 4:30 - Finish Catching Fire. Read another volume of Me and My Brothers!
4:30 - 4:45 - Break Time!
4:45 - 7:00 - Read as much of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban as I can!
Now, I have noted break times on my schedule. HOWEVER, I really just plan on playing it by ear! I have more books on my list, in case I finish one book really quickly. So, I may end up reading more than what I have here. That's okay! I love the read-a-thon for that reason: I can do it however I want! I hope you enjoy your reading as much as I plan on enjoying mine!
